👋 Hi friend, it’s the monthly Community Call recap coming through!
It seems like you got no time to tune in to our Community Call #20 last Tuesday, August 8th, right? As per usual, nothing to worry about 😌
Let’s sit tight 🪑 have a coffee ☕ and enjoy a written recap 🗞️
📹 Just so you prefer to see Juampi rocking the live stream, there you have it 😎
The agenda of the Community Call:
- S4 Strategy Quick Recap
- Product Updates
- Community Updates
- Product Focus & Community Agenda
1. S4 Strategy Quick Recap ↩️
You’ll never build Alone 🧑💻
The community-chosen motto to represent this Season of Goal-Sharing couldn’t be more assertive. 💭 The answer we found for those who continuously build alone, is to make them feel seen and encouraged to share their aims with others for a better outcome socially and dynamically.
To pinpoint that same purpose, the Profile Pages of Talent Protocol’s users now showcase Goals primarily upon opening the profile, hiding past-experience as the first shocking displayed info. 🎯
📽️ Watch Francisco Leal’s demo on the profile! (starting at 13:02)
2. Product Updates 🚀
💼 Virtual Wallet & Concepts
The most anticipated delivery is finally here!
As the Virtual Wallet came along, it brought some new use cases and concepts for $TAL, so why not peek through it? 🙈
- Available $TAL - $TAL that exists within your internal wallet, earned through referral races or/and community activities that are credited if you had unclaimed rewards. A ready-to-use balance of your $TAL. Adding to this, it is possible to track all the transactions history of your $TAL, this is so far only available through Polygon mainnet, however, there will be a bridge to convert from Celo to Polygon and vice-versa.
- Staked $TAL - represents the amount of $TAL staked under Talent Tokens (other users’ tokens)
- Supporting Rewards - Rewards from supporting others
- Supporter Rewards - Rewards from others supporting you
📘 With all this learning, you can finally understand the demo of the virtual wallet (starting at 10:57).
Collective pages 🖼️
Once we’re up to the Product Updates, have you seen our collective pages? That's right, Talent Protocol has searched to invigorate its partners and affiliated communities within the platform through the Collective pages! ✨
🌐 Check out the communities: https://beta.talentprotocol.com/collectives

Looking for Contributors 👨💻
Talent Protocol is currently looking for more enthusiasts on building within the platform! 🚀 Either you’re a full-stack, front-end, back-end, or/and solidity knowledgeable, feel free to see information in detail and apply here: https://talentprotocol.notion.site/Full-Stack-Devs-ce0a12f451b14362ba0a88240ea96a88
Pausing features & Sunsetting 🌇
Filipe Macedo gave us a heads-up on some changes happening within some features that it is believed to boost and clean up undesired slow performance, mainly sunsetting the .tal domains 🔗.
Attaching to it, new Talent Token Launches and Staking Rewards will remain paused ⏸️ (more details on it soon).
3. Community Updates 🫂
It’s Paris time! Quick, bring your macaroons, croissants, and baguettes! 🥐🥖
Take Off Paris & ETHGlobal Paris 🇫🇷
It’s been around a month since the last Take Off edition in Paris! The vibes were high, from a full welcoming dinner to ETHCC, Pragma, ETHGlobal Paris hackathon, all web3 scholars could’ve asked for! 🥐
Filipe Macedo has also shared the enthusiasm of the TakeOffWeb3 scholars throughout the week, and the feeling of drifting away from thoughts, building different things at ETHGlobal 💫
Who would we be to waste words about this amazing experience when you can read full testimonials by the folks directly? 💫
🔙 Oui oui, we have a Take Off 🛫 Paris recap: https://blog.talentprotocol.com/take-off-paris/
Paris was so outstanding that didn’t feel like a week pass by! 🕝 Along Talent Protocol’s journey there, some updates were shared through the Celo Community on CoOPERATE Paris by Celo.
Meeting new projects and communities through Protocol Labs Social Hour was absolutely part of the plan as well! 🚀
And of course, Talent Protocol is not the same without a Talent Brunch 😋This time, the Parisien brunch has featured friends H.E.R DAO & Encode Club. We couldn’t also miss the opportunity to showcase this new Season New Merch👕🧢 (soon to be available on the shop)
See you, Luminita 👋
Never forever goodbyes at Talent Protocol, though it is still sad to see Luminita step down as a core contributor 😢 Luminita herself has shared some words on Community Call #20 to light us up 😊
“You can take Luminita from Talent Protocol, but you can’t take Talent Protocol from Luminita. (…) I don’t like the word ‘goodbye’ so much because, you know, I have merch, I will be on Talent Protocol, I will still be contributing, just in a different way.”
As a personal request during the Call, and if you still want to see what Lumi is up to, just subscribe to her!
🎙️ As a celebration of the past 9 editions of Take Off ✈️ that Luminita shared with all of us, there will be a Twitter (X) space sharing memories! Tune in this August 10th, 2023 (5 PM UTC)!
Take Off Istanbul 🇹🇷
To close this Take Off news circle, we couldn’t let it slide out the next Take Off Edition! IT’S OFFICIAL, Take Off is landing in Istanbul, Türkiye in November 2023 🇹🇷
This new edition will go transcontinental for DevCon and ETHGlobal later this year.
📄 We’ve already opened a WHITELIST for those who already seem up for this adventure: https://talentprotocol.typeform.com/to/sc11BEpF
Nonetheless, more info about it will be given soon, as well as the official application form! Stay tuned 😎
Loyalty Program 🪙

As a great surprise, Talent Protocol reached 1st place on its weekly ranking, alongside other amazing projects 💜
Talent Protocol for the Teams! 🤟 zkSwap is a DeFi & DEX platform using zk Knowledge. The team has decided to display their professional socials as Talent Protocol profiles! That’s amazing, team 👏

Community Events 🎉
Our community is on fire 🔥 Talent is literally being found everywhere with all these events happening.

👉 The full webinar session is available on YouTube (in Spanish):
